New to the site just looking for a little help with ferrography and some statistical analysis. I am looking to set up some thresholds for an alarm system that will monitor a piece of equipment.
I am curious to wether anyone has ever used an ferrography techniques such as wear particle concentration(WPC), or Percent Large Particle (PLP)and if you may have any valuable information about it to help me out.
Also, I am trying to determine wether the information I have is normally distributed or not to know what kind of thresholds to apply to certain peices of equipment. Just wondering if anyone knows any simple techniques to find normality?
Thanks in advanced,
